Founded and established by families who have faced childhood cancer themselves, Brighter Tomorrows exists to provide emotional, spiritual, and educational support by listening to, understanding, and supporting families touched by childhood cancer.
Ray Lunasin is raising $10,000 for Brighter Tomorrows by taking on the "Ironman 70.3 Triathlon", a long-distance triathlon consisting of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bicycle ride and a 13.1 mile run. You can support him here (click "here"), or by taking the kids to a movie, Saturday June 1st!
I was shocked - SHOCKED!, I tells ya! - when I discovered on Facebook that both my sister, Paula, and my wife, Cathy, were getting excited about this BBC show called Downton Abbey. Even more shocking, I have no idea what a Downton Abbey is! Except that Professor McGonnagall from the Harry Potter films is in it...
Apparently, it's the BBC's version of The Walking Dead, but without a zombie apocalypse. Sort of like Boardwalk Empire or Deadwood. And, apparently the third season ended, and it was all the rage ~
The third season finale of Downton Abbey scored the highest ratings it has ever seen in the U.S. with 8.2 million viewers. Over in the UK, the series has consistently been dropping in the ratings from previous seasons.
Fortunately, the series is streaming on instant view on Netflix, so we can all catch up. Right after I get caught up on Doctor Who episodes. I still haven't gotten over Rose being trapped in an alternate dimension and David Tennant's new companion being Dr. Martha Washington. It's like Ari killed Kate ALL over again!
